Swing Swivel Cut



Description

The swing swivel cut is a completely false cut, that looks to all the world like a good cut of the deck. I personally use it all the time as it gives the spectator complete confidence that the cards are mixed up, yet they are retained in perfect order!

It involved breaking the deck into 3 packets, using a swing and a swivel move.

 

How To Do It

Hold the deck in your right hand in biddle grip, so the deck is face down.

Use your right index finger to push away about a third of the top of the deck (lift it up and out about 1cm.)

Take the packet of cards by the top left corner between your left thumb and bottom of your left index finger.

Place the packet in your left hand between your right thumb and ring finger. It should be sat below the main packet of cards, slightly to the right.

Break off another packet of cards from the top of the deck using your right index finger again.

This time instead of taking the top packet of cards (the one you broke away) take the one below it. Do this between your left thumb and index finger again.

Turn your left hand over so it's faceing the ground. Use your left index finger to swivel the top packet of cards in your right hand around your right index finger. Your left index finger must take the cards from theedge closest to you. Swivel the cards right round as you turn your left hand face up. Drop the cards on top of the cards in your left hand.

Drop the cards in your right hand on top of the cards in your left hand to complete the cut. You've done the swing swivel cut! Practice it until it's smooth and you will use this excellent false cut all the time.
